This is an almost exact reproduction of the citadel of Lille, north of France, built by Marshall Vauban in 1668. The design was so perfect that it was nicknamed the queen of citadels.
The city and citadel of Lille were besieged during winter 1708 by prince Eugen of Savoy and lord Marlborough. Despite never being reinforced, the 15,000 garrison under command of Marshal Boufflers resisted during 4 months against the more than 120,000 besieging army.
Nowadays, this citadel is still used, by a NATO HQ.
Model is rather lowpoly, but highly detailed thanks to the various color, bump and normal maps with size varying between 2048*2048 to 4096*4096 depending on the size of the sub-objects. Although primarily designed for general landscape renders, it is also suitable for close-ups.
The model is available in .fbx, .lwo and . obj
Textures are available in a separate file to reduce download times.
Please note that .fbx and .obj should load with textures and bumpmaps without problem, but normal maps will have to be applied manually.
Lwo file loads directly textures, bumps and normals maps.
